Pocket Salon – An Acoustic Parlour

The Salons of today inhabit preexisting, usually grand, spaces. The Pocket Salon is imagined as an acoustic-foam maze, deploying to fill these inspiring spaces.

Conversations are compressed and expanded as members walk. Crosstalk and tangential inspiration occur when passing through these acoustic pockets, where groups in deep discussion are underway.

Topics slice and fold as movement through the Salon’s maze occurs.
